The guy that occasionally pulls his act together to send me photos recently shot Twin Shadow at the Electric Owl club in Vancouver. Take a look-see at these fine shots and listen to some Twin Shadow.

Father John Misty, Live at The Commodore in Vancouver

I'll spare you with the words here. Lately we've had story posts, recipes and travel tips. How about some nice photos for you to digest instead? If you're a frequent visitor of Love & Rum, you'll recognize the image below from a previous post about the J. Tillman / Slowcoustic cover album.

These photos were taken by Tom Nugent at a semi-recent show of Father John Misty's at The Commodore where he opened for The Walkmen (those photos coming later). I love the different looks and stages you get through this small selection of shots. From the top image in this post to the last, you can see the progression happen...

Enjoy!

Rock & Roll in Vancouver: Japandroids do work at The Rickshaw Theatre

Japandroids at the Biltmore Cabaret in Vancouver

How the hell were your holidays? Sick of people asking that? Well, the holidays are over, you're coming out of a daze and you've most likely already broken two or three of your New Year's Resolutions. In a week the rest will all be forgotten while laying in wait for next year.

Speaking of holidays and a New Year's daze, dear friend, drink pal and photo contributor to Love & Rum, Tom Nugent recently went to the Japandroids show at The Rickshaw in Vancouver. Reid Stewart from Lifetime Collective was good enough to connect some dots and bring Tom and the band's manager together to get ol' Thomas into the sold out show. 

Check out a few of the resulting photos below, and then head over to Lifetime Collective's blog to see the rest. Oh yeah, and a freebie of Fire's Highway recorded at the show.
